    That's easy. Look at the connector end (top up) to the left. Cardbus cards
    and pcmcia cards differ at that spot. This is the best I can do in ascii:

    +---- top
    ++
    | connector
    +----- bottom
    ^ this part is thick on cardbus.

    +---- top
    |
    ++
    +----- bottom
    ^ this part is thin on pcmcia. This is so that cardbus cards won't fit into
    a system that doesn't support cardbus. (This is what I assumed, but I don't
    believe all manufacturers made the slots that way)
